Career Course Question

By drisnya ·
I don't want to take up too much time but I have to consider what it is I want to do when I grow up.

I was recently laid off. I have desktop hardware support and a bit of network support experience and I'm not a big fan of either aspect. I'd rather dive head first into a wood chipper than do desktop hardware support any longer.

I took a course in "C" a few years ago and loved it but I didn't continue it. The question I have is twofold: Programming or Web?

I've started messing with Python but I'm wondering if I should pursue further some HTML (web) development?

If Web...I was told to acquire skills in HTML and CSS then work with a WYSIWYG app like Joomla, for example...

If programming, is there a future learning Python? Is Python a good start and does it make someone marketable? What other languages do you build on after this?

Any advice/feedback is appreciated.

Why not go .Net

by gario In reply to Career Course Question

Why not go .Net. I just left a meeting with a consulting company where they are using .Net and it appears to be a great Web based strategy.

I gave that some thought, gario...

but does it cost an arm and a leg to get started? Do you have to purchase a bunch of stuff from MS?...

Is there a foundational language you should have a good knowledge of before you dive into .net?
